The Acer Aspire P3 is a Windows 8 tablet with the guts of an ultrabook — and Acer is calling it an “ultrabook convertible,” thanks to the keyboard docking station which lets you use this 11.6 inch tablet as a notebook.

Acer Aspire P3

Acer will offer the Aspire P3 with a choice of Intel Core i3 or Core i5 processors. In addition to touch and keyboard input, you can use the tablet with an optional digital pen. Acer even includes a spot on the side of the Aspire P3 where you can clip the stylus when you’re not using it.

The Acer Aspire P3 goes on sale this week for $800 and up. It’ll be available with 60GB to 120GB of storage, features front and rear cameras, an IPS display with 170-degree viewing angles, and a 6 hour battery.

The tablet features a full-sized USB 3.0 port and an HDMI port.

Acer says the Aspire P3 measures 0.77 inches thick and weighs 3.06 pounds. If I had to guess, I’d say those specs apply to the tablet and keyboard case combined.

We first learned about the Acer Aspire P3 in a leak last month, which suggested that the tablet would have a 1600 x 900 pixel display and up to 128GB of storage. Acer hasn’t yet confirmed all of those specs.

  1. Even with an active pen, I don’t understand why these things come with a keyboard without a mouse or trackpoint. Even Android becomes easier to use when you add a mouse pointer to supplement touch.

    1. Yes I think these manufacturers have lost it. No touchpad, no pen slot, iffy keyboard/case design more suitable for an ipad. Acer really messed things up with these new products announced today.

  2. “The Acer Aspire P3 is available immediately starting at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $799.99 USD.”
    Immediately? Where?

    1. incredible how they do a press tour and kickoff a great microsite with Tiesto and yet ZERO, FUCKING ZERO information on how, when to buy.
